Testimonials

"I am delighted to tell you how happy P.K. and I both have been working with BooksOnDemand.com. We had several test book printed at a local printer first. They did a good job, but were quite expensive. P.K. did quite a bit of research and thought BooksOnDemand.com would give us a good product, with quick turnaround and at a reasonable price. BooksOnDemand.com did just that, but the thing that stood out for us was the quality of our interaction with the BooksOnDemand.com staff. The book is beautiful. A copy editor/friend who bought the first one told us of two corrections and we made them in the second printing. All our correspondence with BooksOnDemand.com by phone or email was friendly and helpful, which we have only had with a handful of very customer-oriented companies over the past 15 or so years. It is such a pleasure to deal with your organization, which is located not too far from where my daughter lives. Because of that, on our way to the National Wellness Institute's annual..."

FAQs

Q. What is “On Demand” book printing?

Digital files are ideally suited to publish small print runs and when they are needed. Print 'On Demand' provides lower per unit costs for very small print runs rather than traditional printing methods, such as off-set printing.
